Curriculum: Concentration in Dietetics

The Dietetics concentration is a Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND), 120 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 2000, Chicago, IL 60606-6995, (312) 899-4876. ACEND, formerly known as the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education (CADE), is the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' accrediting agency for education programs preparing students for careers as registered dietitians (RD) or dietetic technicians, registered (DTR). The program offers preparation for careers in dietetics as nutritionists, clinical or management dietitians, dietitians in private practice, and consulting dietitians. After completing the degree, students receive a verification statement that DPD requirements have been met, qualifying them to apply for a supervised practice program (dietetic internship). After completion of an internship, students must pass the national examination to become registered dietitians (R.D.) and be eligible for licensure as dietitians/nutritionists (L.D.N.) in the State of Tennessee. Students with baccalaureate degrees in other areas may complete the DPD requirements at MTSU. Transfer students must take a minimum of 18 hours in nutrition and food science at MTSU to include NFS 4220, NFS 4222, NFS 4300, NFS 4310, and NFS 4400.
